Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Bierman9 on 06-16-2002

This world famous bock from Bavaria’s Holy Mountain is not meant to be rushed, but savoured slowly. As solid as a rock, Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel presides over the evening meal with a colour reminiscent of dark copper with nuances of fiery red. Its clear gleaming look harmonises with its firm, fine pored head.

Also the aroma delights the connoisseur: soft roasted accents and a nuance of dried fruit carrying a vein of caramel. This Doppelbock Dunkel from Bavaria’s Holy Mountain presents a pleasant effervescence. And then there’s the unmistakable flavour: mouthcoating and velvety, strong and yet pleasantly malty – a powerful, robust body. At the same time, it develops an easily recognisable sweetness, embraced in roasted cocoa and a light, bitter hoppiness.

Concluding with a powerful punch, this Doppelbock departs with a lingering aftertaste of quality plain chocolate. A strong Doppelbock that embodies the centuries old Benedictine brewing tradition, sip by delicious sip.

Picked up at a bottle shop in San Fran, might have been old because while it looked and smelled okay, the taste was just off, and certainly not worthy of the praise this one typically gets. Would be willing to try again though.

A really nice beer.

Beautiful brown & cherry color. Good fine head.

Taste is malty, a little sweet on the approach, hint of sweetness on the nose as well. Complex. On the palate it resembles a porter, actually.

Some mocha on the finish, long subtle bitterness. Not Celebrator, not by a mile, but still a beer that the maker should be proud of.

A. Real nice dark brown with a copper hue. Small cream colored head. Very inviting.
S. Dark fruit, caramel, hint of chocolate
T. Dark fruit early and closes with a little chocolate. Could maybe use a little more malty and nutty flavor. Dark fruit comes out more as warms.
M. Light carbonation and very smooth.
O. Really good dopplebock. I would prefer a little less of the dark fruit and more roasted malt. Still very good but Ayinger Dopplebock still my go to.

On draft at Papago. Pours a deep brown with a thick tan head. Once the head went away beer was sweet and malty. Low carbonation. Great German beer character.

A - Poured into a snifter, dark amber color, medium head that settled quickly.
S - Aroma of raisins to me.
T - There is definitely a sweetness, I assume it's the malt.
M - Thick and chewy, low carbonation.
O - I don't get any of the cocoa that is mentioned in other reviews. This is exactly what I expect from a dependable German Dopplebock. I don't rate is as highly as others but it is a good beer.
